    My apologies- I think your reaction is reasonable considering the proximity. My best wishes to your community.

    The quality, indeed very nature, of movies would shift if people stopped buying tickets to see them.

    But they won't.

    Just onemore side-effect of the liberal dumbing-down of our schools.

    Liberalism destroys imagination and innovation.

    I am not a huge effects junky which is what a lot of blockbuster movies are now. Also, there is some really good content on TV and streaming. The other part of it is the quality of the theaters. We used to have some amazing local owned 1-3 screen local theaters. Huge screens and you never had to hear a peep from outside. These new 10+ screen theaters are not as impressive and you can often hear the movie and or the audience reactions on either side of your movie. Kind of ruins it.

    Lack of creativity (laziness) - plus the trend is toward straight to cable movies. Netflix etc. is king now. Going to the movies is now something you do with the kids so you don't have to deal with them.....

    I have little interest in superhero movies, or summer blockbusters, which is all the theatres are showing these days. The last movie I went to the theatre to see was the last Jurassic Park movie, which I saw with my grandkids.

    The exception might be the new Planet of the Apes, which is getting great reviews.

    Sex, violence, and special effects. That's what most people want to see so that's what Hollywood gives them. With a nod towards the occasional well made movie with a good story and the kiddies movies to get 'em out of the house for a couple of hours.
